Basics of Virtual Reality with Unreal Engine Training

Real-time 3D development with Unreal Engine 4 focus on Virtual Reality

Unreal Engine 4 is a professional tool for the development of interactive applications like architectural visualizations, presentations and video games. In this course you will learn the basics of the realtime engine, so you can start on your own productions afterwards. The focus lies on the creation of interactive virtual reality content for desktop computers. The course is guided by a practical example project for HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, which show-cases the abilities of Unreal Engine 4. Teaching templates and material contained in the course will be made available for the participants after conclusion. All included materials can then be used freely for private or commercial projects, to enable further exploration of the learned topics.
